When there was no clearing done by humans, were all the areas providing “tree-friendly” conditions coated by vast expanses of forest, or were there any naturally occurring grassy plains as there are nowadays (that is resulting from wood cutting, like those in Britain – I reckon that until the logging activities throughout the middle ages, forests there were not scarce either)?

By what means could forest be naturally prevented from spreading wherever there are favorable conditions?
